Alas the NCAA basketball season is upon us, and we have an opening day matchup as the UC Riverside Highlanders travel north to Corvallis, Oregon, to take on the Oregon State Beavers at the Gill Coliseum.
This is the first ever meeting between these two schools as each team looks to notch their first win of the 2018/19 basketball season.
UC Riverside Highlanders
The UC Riverside new head coach David Patrick looks to have his hands full with this Highlanders 2018/19 squad, a team that is picked once again to finish in the bottom half of the Big West Conference.
Though Patrick was able to bring in some fresh talent in JUCO transfer PF Daniel Mading, F Zac Watson and New Zealand’s top prospect, 7-foot-1 center Callum McRae, the performance of his first recruiting class will go a long way to see if Patrick sticks around in the NCAA ranks.
Hometown product Dikymbe Martin looks to be the leader of this team on the court, and he will have to carry the load as most of the rest of the Highlanders backcourt are underclassmen.
The Highlanders open up the season with three straight road games, and none of them seem to get any easier. After this game they play at Portland State before finishing the weekend up in Las Vegas against UNLV. A win here could really go a long way for this young team and their new coach.
Oregon State Beavers
The Beavers, like the Highlanders, are projected to finish at the bottom half of their conference as well. Of course the Pac-12 has Oregon, UCLA and Washington in the preseason Top 25, while the Big West doesn’t have anyone ranked.
The Beavers will have to get off to a hot start in their non-conference schedule, like Arizona State did last season, if they want to stand any chance of making it to any post-season tournaments at all, which is highly unlikely looking at this roster.
Nobody likes the coaches son, or assistant coaches son for that matter, but if you’re a Beavers fan, you kind of have to. Tres Tinkle is the son of head coach Wayne Tinkle, and Stephen Thompson Jr. and Ethan Thompson are the sons of assistant coach Stephen Thompson. The trio combined for 72% of the Beavers scoring last season.
The Beavers start out the season with a very favorable schedule. After this game, the play Wyoming, Old Dominion and Long Beach State. They had better hope to win at least three of their first four or they will be in big trouble come conference play.

Free UC Riverside Highlanders vs. Oregon State Beavers NCAAB Prediction:
With the Highlanders starting play with a plethora of new players, and a new head coach, it’s not hard to call them the underdogs in this matchup.
Not that the Beavers are a great team either, with their star players on this team most likely because of the coaching staff, you still have to give them your money action in this game.

Take the Beavers to win this game. It should be a low scoring game, but the betting total hasn’t been released yet, so make sure you’re 100% behind it if you want to lay money on the O/U.
